Revenue JAC to organise round table on Nov. 11

The Telangana Revenue Joint Action Committee will organise a round table meeting to infuse confidence into the revenue employees who were disturbed and shocked over Monday’s gruesome killing of Abdullapurmet Tahsildar Vijaya Reddy at her chamber.

The JAC leaders said that revenue employees across the State were observing protest to condole the ghastly killing and these programmes would continue.

Leaders of all revenue employees’ associations, employees, teachers, workers and pensioners would be invited to the round table. Revenue JAC leaders — V. Latchi Reddy, State president, Deputy Collectors’ Association and S. Ramulu, State president, Telangana Tahsildars Association , G. Upendra Rao, State president, Telangana Village Revenue Officers Welfare Association and others — who visited relay fast camps of revenue employees at Medchal and Sangareddy collectorates on Thursday said the Revenue department and its employees were being maligned and targeted like never before. Some leaders instigated farmers to view revenue employees as enemies because of pending land-related issues though the fundamental reasons for the situation were lopsided Revenue laws and inefficient software. Mandal-level officers had no powers to correct revenue records and in some cases, though there was a possibility to correct them where no disputes were involved, the online system did not provide an option. As a result, farmers were blaming revenue officers, they said. The JAC requested the government to exempt the Revenue department from handling land administration, they added.
